User Score: 623

  • Season 2 Episode 20: Showdown

  • Marshall says that his mother wouldn't like him eating junk food; however, in "Belly Full of Turkey" Marshall's mom gives Lily a recipe for a salad that contains, among other things, gummy bears, Funyuns, and potato chips.

  • Season 2 Episode 19: Bachelor Party

  • Goof: In this episode, there's a flashback of Barney flying to San Francisco to convince Lily to get back together with Marshall, remarking that he can't keep stealing Marshall's dates forever. However, at the time Barney was stealing Marshall's dates ("The Scorpion and the Toad"), Lily was back in NYC already.

  • When Robin tries to "communicate" with Lily by attempting to read each others' minds, we see this effort fail completely. However, this isn't the first episode in which such an attempt is made. In the first-season episode Mary the Paralegal, we see the "famous telepathic conversations" between Lily and Marshall, as well as Marshall and Ted.

  • When Barney is in San Francisco asking Lily to go back home he mentions he can't keep stealing girls from Marshall forever. This ties to a previous episode, "The Scorpion and the Toad", in which Barney supposedly teaches Marshall how to hit on women but ends up stealing all candidates from him. Now we know Barney was doing that on purpose to keep Marshall from going on without Lily.

  • Season 2 Episode 18: Moving Day

  • While Barney is in the back of the van with the girl and Ted begins driving, Barney tumbles to the floor as the van apparently drives over a pothole, but the glass of alcohol on the table doesn't slosh or tip over.

  • Season 2 Episode 17: Arrivederci, Fiero

  • When Ted was teaching Barney how to drive the car they were in some parking lot and we could see some grass and bush far away from them, but when Barney was trying to avoid the dog he drove right into some bush and we clearly saw that before he turned the wheel just a little bit so he couldn't reach the bush so quickly.

  • Before finding out about Lily and Robin's accident during the Thai food take out excursion, Marshall mentions that a "homeless guy threw up in the back seat." The Fiero was a 2-seat sports car and did not have a back seat.

  • Even though the Fiero is featured prominently in first-season episodes "Sweet Taste of Liberty" and "Milk", the song "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" cannot be heard in these episodes.

  • In season one's "Milk", when Ted was left by the side of the road, he first calls Barney to "pick him up," indicating Barney had a car and was able to drive in season one.

    Edit: The story was prefaced with the fact that it happened "last year" Since this is season 2, it is possible that he learned to drive during season 1 well enough to have his own car and drive to get Ted during season 1.

  • In the flashback sequences, Marshall's Fiero still has a 2007 New York state registration sticker.

  • Season 2 Episode 16: Stuff

  • Marshall: Ok, so you have to have sex with one: either classic mermaid, bottom half fish, top half human, or inverted mermaid, top half fish, bottom half human, go!

    Last season when Marshall was interning at Barney's company, he was put off by the other lawyers who kept forcing him to chose which of two women to sleep with, ended by the phrase "go!" Clearly, Marshall picked up the habit.

  • The final scene, in which Marshall slaps Barney and states "That's two" is a reference to a previous episode "Slap Bet" in which it is decided that Marshall can slap Barney in the face anywhere, at anytime a total of five times. He now has three slaps left.

  • Season 2 Episode 15: Lucky Penny

  • In this episode Ted finds a 1939 penny and reports his discovery to Robin. This situation (as evidenced by the clothes they are wearing) immediately follows a scene from episode 2.02, "The Scorpion and the Toad".

  • When the outside of the airport is shown, you can see a Swissair plane, even though the company went bankrupt in 2002 and is now called Swiss, with a new logo.

  • Season 2 Episode 14: Monday Night Football

  • At the wake Ted proposes that they all should meet the next day at 6 p.m. to watch the Super Bowl, he also says that it will be difficult to go the next 18 hours without finding out the score. At the beginning of wake scene when Carl was talking we can clearly see the time and it says 2:36 a.m. which means 18 hours from that point will be 8.36 p.m. and not 6 p.m. as Ted proposed.

  • Season 2 Episode 12: First Time In New York

  • Barney says that when he lost his virginity to Rhonda, his comforter smelled like menthols for a week, however, in the episode "The Yips", it is revealed that Barney and Rhonda had sex at her place, not his.

  • When Ted's first time girl is getting out of bed you can see she is wearing jeans, It then cuts to her standing in her underwear and putting on her pants.

  • Season 2 Episode 11: How Lily Stole Christmas

  • When Ted is talking to Barney and Robin at MacLaren's, Barney scolds Ted by erroneously calling him Ted Vivien Mosby. When Ted replies, "That's not my middle name", Robin takes a sip of her drink. When the shot goes back to Barney, we see that Robin again picks up her drink to sip from the straw.

  • Season 2 Episode 10: Single Stamina

  • The actor that plays Tom in this episode is not the same with the one on season 7 in the episode 'The Rebound Girl'

  • At James' wedding a year later, Ted and Robin do not leave the reception when Lily and Marshall do, which shows that Ted and Robin now have single stamina again; thus alluding to their break up at the end of Season 2.
